Founded in 2009, Latincouver is a non-profit organization that brings together both Latin Americans and Latin enthusiasts living in B.C. This vast network can be compared to the public square or, as it is common said in Latin America, la plaza. In the past, the plaza acted as the social and economic hub of a city and as the heart of the community, playing an important role in bringing people together. Latincouver is the modern-day plaza at which professional connections are made, and entrepreneurs get the help they need for their businesses to grow and succeed.
